Post War Era is a series of short blog posts published on the official Star Trek Online web page. The posts are written from an in-universe perspective, and tell short stories set during the time immediately following the Iconian War.
"Token of Honor"
- In the aftermath of the Iconian War, both the Federation and Klingon Empire require new sources of minerals to rebuild their depleted fleets. Captain Trox of the U.S.S. Madrid arrives at Trafalax 3, where long-range scans had detected tritanium ore deposits. However, they find that the planet has already been claimed by Ka'ar, captain of the I.K.S. Leng. While Captain Trox believes the Federation has a legitimate claim to the planet, he must resolve the situation without damaging the fragile alliance between the Federation and the Empire.

- Lukari Administrator Kuumaarke has been granted temporary command of the U.S.S. Defiant and sent on a diplomatic mission to the Na'kuhl System to offer to help the Na'kuhl re-ignite their star. The Na'kuhl refuse her offer, and she retreats from the system in accordance to their demands; however, she then has her crew re-enter the system under cloak to scan the star. Unfortunately, the scans determine that the fusion within the star has been permanently disrupted, and cannot be restored without Kal Dano or the Tox Uthat.

- Captain Va'Kel Shon discusses recent developments with Lieutenant Kyona, his Chief of Security. The U.S.S. Enterprise has been involved in the ongoing diplomatic mission to the Na'kuhl. The Federation Council is deadlocked regarding emergency support for the Na'kuhl, as pockets of xenophobia have arisen in the aftermath of the war; the Romulan Republic's resources have been depleted in the war and they are unable to help; and the Klingons and Cardassians are willing to welcome the Na'kuhl, provided they subject themselves to the rule of their respective empires. Of the Na'kul's neighbors, the Ferengi have expressed a willingness to sell their "hospitality;" and the Trill, Lukari, and Denobulans have been willing to help. The Bajorans were initially hesitant, until Kai Kira took a personal interest in the matter.
